I don’t know about you, but 2015 consisted of the same few hairstyles for pretty much the entire year. If you had trouble changing up your look last year, then it might be time to change up your hair.
Whether your looking to chop off some locks, try out a new hairstyle, or amp up your normal look, 2016 is going to give you some pretty rad trends to try out this year.
Here are seven easy ways to break out of your hair rut in 2016:
1. Add layers
Adding layers to your hair is an easy way to change up your hairstyle without having to actually take the plunge of cutting it all off. This cut will give you a chance to mix it up a bit for the start of the year, and still stand out amongst the crowd.
2. New twist on the classic braid
If you’re looking at changing up your classic braid, than you came to the right spot. We all know how easy it is to throw our hair into a quick braid, but why not spice it up a bit for 2016.
How about trying a high ponytail with a double fishtail braid? This fashion forward look gives this style a thick and sleek edge to the classic braid.
3. Change up your ponytail
If you’re looking to change up your normal messy ponytail, try going for this low chic style. This is a great way to modify your everyday pony, while still giving you a unique classy look.
If you want to take this style up a notch even more, you can add a layer of black bobby pins off to one side of your hair. Warning: this look may have you searching around your home for all those bobby pins you lost last year.
4. Bling, Bling, Bling

Adding some extra bling to your hair can really change up your look and take it to the next level. For example, you can take a normal everyday bun and find some fairly inexpensive hair accessories to add to it.
It’s an easy way to show up, and make a statement!
5. Chop it off
If adding layers isn’t cutting it for you anymore, then it might be time to go for that shorter look you’ve always wanted. The bob is a classic short hairstyle that never seems to go out of style. This look might be the perfect way to start out your year. Like they say, out with the old and in with the new!
Most people shy away from bangs because… well they can be high maintenance. Sometimes it takes more time to style them then it does to do the rest of your hair.
Luckily, messy fringe bangs are in this year! It looks like it’s time to let your bangs take on a mind of their own.
7. Blow dryer beach waves
It’s time to put away that curling iron for a bit, and start going for more of those natural waves.
With a little bit of hair product, a blow dryer and a little twisting of your hair, you can easily get this look in just a few minutes.
Say hello to all natural hair!
